Laser Assisted Dentistry

Family 1st Dental holds all of our offices to a high standard of excellence in personalized dental care.

We are proud to offer Laser Assisted Dentistry, conveniently available at many of our locations. Benefits of using the diode laser technology in dentistry include minimizing damage of tissue for faster healing time with no anesthesia required.

We are now offering Cold Sore and Canker Sore treatments with low intensity lasers to reduce the pain associated with cold sores and minimized healing time.

Cold Sores

The common cold sore is caused by the herpes virus and is also known as recurrent herpes labialis. Although most people are exposed to the herpes virus, only a small percentage suffer from recurrent outbreaks.

Cold sores are usually found on the outer lip. Typically there is a period for a day or two prior to the outbreak where the person feels itching in the area where the outbreak will occur. Cold sores can be caused by trauma, sunburn, stress, illness, cold weather, and the like.

Laser treatments can give immediate pain relief and the lesion will heal in about 24-72 hours.

Be sure to call to find out more about this treatment and many more using Laser Dentistry.
